Our Propyzamide Knowledge Hub has been created for oilseed rape growers and advisors. The new materials go back to basics on what propyzamide is, how it works, how to apply it to achieve the best outcome, and practical advice on how to use it responsibly.
What is propyzamide?
Propyzamide is a selective, systemic herbicide for use in oilseed rape. It controls key grass weeds such as blackgrass and ryegrass which are resistant to alternative chemistry.
There is no known resistance in Europe to propyzamide which makes it a key tool to help manage and reduce the burden of these weeds across the rotation.
Renowned herbicides such as Astrokerb® and Kerb® Flo 500 contain propyzamide and are the cornerstones of many herbicide programmes.
